Steam power was    ?Backyard Revolution Review??? developed around the beginning of the 18th century, starting off the industrial revolution. Steam was produced from burning wood. Then coal was found to be the best resource to develop steam from water. Steam locomotives transported people from place to place and later moved across canals. Coal was used to heat buildings, because wood was often hard to get and handle. However, wood was used where it was available. These were places that trees needed to be cut down in order to cultivate more land.

Then someone realized that steam power was better than wind power to move boats. Steamboats were developed to go faster. They were used to go to more distant places than using wind power. The first automobiles also used wood to make steam to run the car. But, that method was extremely difficult because it took a great deal of room for the necessary wood and water to travel any distance.

In the late 1800's, the gasoline engine, which used oil products, was invented to power vehicles. The gasoline or internal combustion engine continues to be used today. Oil, its products and by-products, is being used to do everything from heating homes, paving streets and producing products to run vehicles and airplanes.

The next energy invention was electricity. We now have electric lights to illuminate our homes and electric motors to power our appliances. Waterpower from hydroelectric dams is used to make that electricity. Environmentalists do not like the interruption or destruction of natural landscapes with dams and their huge concrete walls. Oil or coal is also used to make electricity where moving water in unavailable.
